With breathtaking views of the Elizabeth River, downtown Norfolk, and neighboring Portsmouth, SkyStar attracted tens of thousands of riders this summer. The 12-story wheel, equipped with 36 climate-controlled gondolas, opened at Waterside District in May and welcomed its last riders on Sunday, August 19.
Next, the wheel rolls to Ohio for a fall stay in Cincinnati overlooking Riverfront Park.
